King James' Version Good Enough.
The memorial of the Diocese oi Massa
chussets praying the authorization of the
use of the Ilevised Version of the Holy
Scriptures was unfavorably reported from
he committee to which it had been re
ferred. The crounds given were the con
troversy among the revisionists; the dis
tortion of the new version; its cumbrous and
pedantic phrases which obscure the senbe
and offend the ear and the lack of that air
of authority which clusters about the King
James version. Rev. Dr. Abbot presented
his views as the minority member of the
committee and claimed it was not the object
to make the use of the revised version
obligatory. The matter was made the order

One ot the most important reports during
the session of the Council was presented

torney General Talks on the Redskins
No Hope for Sirs. Harrison.
General I W. Colby, Assistant Attorney
General of the United States, passed
through Pittsburg last night on his way
from "Washington to his home at Beatrice,
General Colby is the commanding officer
of the troops in Nebraska and he led the
'Indian campaign against Wounded Knee,
in which Sitting Bull was killed. It was
General Colby who, in that campaign, found
an Indian girl baby which had
been deserted in the flight of the hand of
redskins and which was almost frozen to
death. The Indian baby was, alter the
campaign ended, .taken to Washington,
where it was adopted by General Colby and
is now, he says, one of "the most interesting
members of his interesting family. The
baby is now tw o years old. It is provided
with a nurse and is surrounded with all the
care and consideration that can be pro
vided. "We propose educating ths little one,"
the General said, "and we are hopeful for
her future. She is now a robust, healthy
babv and is as lively as a cricket.
"I am a firm believer in the education of
the Indian, and I think the Government
officials enjoy the same confidence. AVe
have found that the beat possible way to
treat the redskins is to civilize them. We
find that the Indians make good citizens.
In fact they make better citizens than some
other ot our races.
"There is at this time," General Colbv
said, "some alarm throughout Nebraska
over another threatened outbreak among
Sioux Indians. The alarm, I am satisfied
is unfounded; an outbreak is unlikely. The
Government appropriation is still substan
tial, and so long as the Indians are well fed
and well clothed they will not fight.
"The last outbreak" among the Indians
was due solely to the short appropriation,
by which the Indians werestarved into
desperation. They were being cheated by
the Indian agents, and were not at fault in
the battle, which was largely lor food and

THE BOROUGH GAILY DECKED.
Comrades of Three Regiments Sit Around
VOLUNTEERS OP THE 76TH COXTENE
Wilkin sbnrg echoed yesterday with the
shouts and cheers of the remains of three
regiments of scarred veterans, mingled with
the welcoming hurrahs of the inhabitants of
the quiet borough. Every window and
door was decorated with -bunting, and
from every house top floated the national
colors. The occasion for all this was the
fourteenth annual reunion of the Eighty
fifth, One Hundred and First and One Hun
dred and Third Begiments of Pennsylvania
The day was a gala one, no weather could
be more delighttnl and no more substantial
crowd ot people could have been brought
together. The gathering of 5,000 was
sprinkled with maidens, and every child in
the locality big enough to go to school was
present with a little banner. The streets
were arched at every few yards with motto
inscribed banners. "They Fought Our
Country's Battles," "Welcome Soldiers
and Victors," and many other similar in
scriptions were the silent greeting to the
boys in blue.
A Private Once Again.
Colonel Andy Stewart was there with the
Test of the veterans of the Eighty-fifth. His
tall figure towered above all bis comrades,
and he smiled with satisfaction .as he
marched in the dress parade, once more a
private in the regiment in which he rose to
be Adjutant during active service. By his
side was 'Squire Creelman, the main gun ot
1 local celebrations, and High Chief Justice
of the quaint borousb. Every veteran of
the Eighty-fifth, One Hundred and First
and One 'Hundred and Third ate and
Btipped together in thre open air, and so did
their sisters and their cousins and their
. The day was opened with reveille at sun
rise. The horns blew, the drums were
sounded, and in a short time everybody was
up and doing. At 10 o'clock a laree as
semblage went to the Opera House, on Penn
avenue, where Burgess J. J. Campbell de
livered to the visitors and veterans an ad
dress of welcome. It was appropriately re
sponded to by George S. Fulmer, ot Pitts
burg. At 11:30 a parade was formed by Chiet
Marshal William Boss, and 500 men
marched through the streets behind the
colors of their respective.regiments. Dinner
was served by a committee of ladies at
Athletic Park, and every veteran partook
ot the repast which was dished out in
genuine camp style.
Calling the Roll of the Dead.
The regimental organizations opened up
Iheir business meetings in the afternoon.
S. M. Evans, of the One Hundred and Third,
presided. There as something impressive
about ..the scene in the little playhouse
while the roll of comrades reported dead
was being called off. The cray heads ot the
vets bowed down and tears dropped from
the eyes ot many of them. But when a
cheer was asked tor the memories of the
boys who had gone to rest, every man in
the hall arose and waved his red bandana.
Samuel Long was elected Chairman for tne
The dress parade at Athletic Park at 4
o'clock was a feature of the day. The men
made a splendid showing and drilled under
the oiders of Captains C W. May and
George S. Fulmer. Captains Bowers and
Ed C Cheek acted as adjutants andS. M.
Evans and T. UuUois as lieutenants. Prof.
Anderson, superintendent of the
local public schools, lined his pupils along
in front of the big throng. The grandstand
was packed with spectators and three brass
bands played the music of every nation.
Lunch was served again in the open air,
and then came the big event of the day
It was held in the Opera House in the
evening. Logan M. Truxhall was master of
ceremonies and chairmanof the meeting.
Everything was informal to a degree and
partook, as it were, of the flavor of the
canvas tent and black coffee, the strongest
beverage, by the way, to be found in town
during the day. Comrade Truxhall opened
the camp in rare fashion and set thincs go
ing. A Song From the 'Squire.
Somebody in the audience called tor the
'squire. Comrade Creelman, for he is the
'squire and the onlv one in the boroucrh.
responded and started to siug "Army
Beans." Prof. Anderson sat at the organ
and helped along. The audience took up
the strain and for 15 minutes the war cry of
the One Hundred and First kept up. There
may not haYe been much music
in the rendition, but the air was
there and "that was all the boys needed to
start them. Then a veteran stood up, and
with a grave countenance requested to hear
from Comrade Sam Evans. That gentleman
arose, and started the first notes of "Tent
ing on the Old Camp Ground." The throne
took up the chorus until the din became
deafening. The ladies joined in the singing
and otherwise demonstrated their enthusi
asm with handkerchiefs, hats and umbrellas.
Comrade Scliaefler was the next one
called upon, and the announcement of his
name set the applause going. "We Have
Drank From the Same Canteen," was the
song he sung, and the honse was heartily
with him. Comrade Fulmer was asked to
say something to the gathering and he did
in the neatest possible speech. Comrade
Cochran wis called upon to give the boys a
song. "We Are the Boys" was the one he
selected, and he did it full justice. Several
short addresses were then made, the soldiers
and their families mingled for half an hour
and the big campfire broke up with a grand
chorus ot "Marching Through Georgia."
THE KEYSTONE ZOUAVES.
Veterans of the Seventy-Sixth Hold Their
Tenth Annual Reunion.
The tenth annnai reunion of the Seventy
sixth Begiraeut, Pennsylvania Veteran
Volunteers' Association, known as the Key
stone Zonaves, was held at the U. V. L.
Hall, on Sixth avenue, yesterday. The ses
sion was called to order at 10:30 in the
morning, with Captain Alfred Hicks, of
Leechburg, in the chair. There were about
50 members present. The report of the

ganization to be in a good condition finan
cially. The election of officers resulted as
follows: President, J. P. Harmon; Secre
tary and Treasurer, L. W. Johnston, and.
Assistant Secretary, J. C Grandy. Thr'

DEACON WINS FIRST ROUND.
The French Court Decide It Has Juris
dlctldn In the Divorce Case and Orders
th e Trial to Proceed An Adjournment
Pending an Appeal.
Grasse, Fbance, Oct. ia The Deacon
divorce trial began here to-day. The
specific object of the action to-day was to
prove criminality on the part ot Mrs. Dea
con in order that the plaintifi can apply for
a divorce. Mr. Deacon was present in the
court room, but Mrs. Deacon was absent.
She was represented by counsel, however,
who contended that the court was incompe
tent to try the case. Though Mrs. Deaoon
did not appear in the court room, she is in
Grasse awaiting the outcome of the case.
The court pronounced that there was
nothing in Mr. Deacon's attitude or in his
correspondence with his wife that involved
a renunciation of his right to proceed
against her. It was, therefore, ordered
.that the trial be proceeded with after a re
cess, which was taken until 3 o'clock.
When the court again opened alter the re
cess, M. Barboux stated that he had
appealed against the decision of the court,
and asked that the case be adjourned until
the sppeal waa decided. The court granted
the request and awarded the costs to Mrs.
Deacon. The appeal will be heard in Aix.
"Whv," saiif Mrs. Deacon's counsel
during "his argument, "does Mr. Deacon,
who was convicted of killing M. Abeille,
bring this serious charge-ai;ainst his wife?
Because he desires to obtain her conviction in
order to secure a divorce' without submit
ting to a lull inquiry all that has occurred
since the murder. The facts elicited at the
trial proved that Deacon was insane. After
the trial Deacon became, reconciled with
his wile. How is this consistent with his
present action? Moreover, the couple
agreed by a written document to share the
custody of the children. This agreement
involves the absolute renunciation ' of all
subsequent legal proceedings.
M. Pilatte then proceeded to read a num
ber of letters written by Mrs. Deacon to
her husband, praying for his forgiveness for
the terrible wrong she had done him. When
M. Pilatte had finished, M. Barboux main
tained, in answer to the letters, that Mr.
Deacon had certainly giyen his wife to un
derstand that he had abandoned his inten
tion to sue for divorce. M. Barboux added:
"I do not know what happens in America,
but in France such equivocation cannot be
